This museum is spacious and interesting with many exhibits in, you can see and experience the entire history of the City of Zagreb and the Croatian but. The only drawback is that there are no special facilities and programs, and it after a visit there is no need to visit multiple

I am not big on Museums but I was definitely taken back with the history of this country and its people. Definitely worth going to experience the culture and the magic of Croatia.

Our family enjoyed this chronological history of Zagreb with many excellent artifacts ranging from about 500 AD to 1990s. You do need the headsets to really understand the history...the descriptions are a little long winded so we just listened to the first minute or so for each highlight. One of the best options in Zagreb.

This was a great opportunity to see signs of centuries of history of this great country which was exposed by several invasions without losing their roots and resulting in a special culture.

This museum is comprised of several buildings some of which appear to date to the 18th century and there are under ground basement structures that are open and look even older.

Great little museum. Learnt a lot about the history on Zagreb. If you can't read Croatian then you will need an audio guide to get full benefit from your visit. Would recommend.

This is a good place to go on your first day in Zagreb - a fascinating tour through the history of the city. The museum is well-organised on a chronological basis, and you need about 2 hours to see it properly. Each room covers a particular period, and as you enter there is a panel with text in Serbo-Croat, English... More

An old convent converted into a museum. They excavated under the monastery and found artifacts dating back to the Roman times. you can walk through history from then until today. Very well presented.
